We had a fun space unit. We learned all about astronauts, our solar system, spaceships, aliens, the moon, and lots of big science words!
We graphed would you like to go to the moon? They colored a moon coin and placed it on the correct column. The cute little astronauts came from Babbling Abby.

We practiced counting back with this super fun song, climb aboard the spaceship. My kids loved acting out the song and shouting, "Blast off!" We also glued the song into our poetry journals.
Here is our space word wall to help us while we write.
Here is one of our pocket chart activities they completed during stations. Idea inspiration by Julie Lee.
We read lots of non-fiction books about space and recorded our new learning with this little recording sheet. They loved picking out a non-fiction book to find new facts.
 Astronauts tree map-
 We filled it out after reading books about astronauts. They used this to help them with their writing during the week.

Summer has arrived! I plan to update in the next few days all of the things we did up until the last day of school. First up . . . weather!
We made wind socks to observe wind direction and movement. We illustrated the wind socks with the types of weather.

We made ROY G. BIV to help us remember the order of the colors in the rainbow.

We learned all about clouds then had a little fun writing our sight words in "clouds."
We read, shapes in the sky, then we went outside and observed the clouds. Then we brainstormed adjectives that described the different types of clouds. We used our anchor chart to make cloud list poems and made these clouds and attached rainbow colored crepe paper.
We made cloud flip books. I had the kids create cumulus, cirrus, and stratus clouds out of cotton balls and label them in their books! You can get this download here from Crazy for First Grade. I saw this idea on The First Grade Parade.
